We asked Stephen to share with us some his ‘scary’ experiences

The first time I was truly scared while watching the TV was on November 23, 1963, when Doctor Who was shown for the first time on British television. I was seven years old and my brothers were five and three. It really was the cliché of hiding behind the sofa. We did that, we really did! It was more the anticipation that was scary rather than the show, because as I remember it the Daleks only appeared right at the end! It became regular Saturday night viewing for us, and gradually we were able to watch it on the sofa instead of behind it. More than 50 years later I still enjoy the show, and can still be scared by it. In 2007 the ‘Blink’ episode introduced the Weeping Angels, which the Doctor calls “the deadliest, most powerful, most malevolent life-form ever produced.” Weeping Angels only move when they are not being watched, when they are watched they turn into stone statues. How scary is that? I watched parts of that episode through my fingers, though I did manage to stay on the sofa!

I’ve always liked scary movies – The Exorcist was released in 1973 when I was 17 and I saw it at the Sale Odeon even though you had to be 18 or older to get in. It terrified me, especially when the girl’s head turned through a full 360 degrees!

But I have to say that generally I’m more scared by books than by films. I remember reading IT by Stephen King when I was working in Hong Kong. I lived on the 18th floor of a tower block in one of the most crowded cities in the world, but I was so scared by reading IT that I had to sleep with the light on. I truly feared that the killer clown was in my kitchen and that balloons were going to float through the kitchen door.
